A fountain sends a stream of water 28.8 m up into the air. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8. IF the base of the stream is 4.38 cm in diameter, what power is required to send the water to this height?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I was thinking maybe using bernoulli's equation to find the pressure and plug into to the formula work=pressure x volume. Then plug the answer for work into power=work/delta t.

Then i was thinking how do u find the time.. so i used the equation t= the square root of 2gh.

Is my though process correct? Any hints?? tHANKS IN ADVANCE
